Perimeter Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Operated by the town of Fairview, Bowie Nature Park traverses mildly rolling Middle Tennessee forestland not usually slated for preservation. The Bowie Sisters, longtime Fairview residents, rehabilitated this cut-over, burned-over, and eroded land, then deeded it to the town of Fairview. What remains today is an attractive forest with trees of differing ages, cut by clear creeks forming small valleys. The distance is the most challenging aspect of the hike."
